What is Antenatal Care?

Antenatal care is a type of preventive health care, provided in the form of medical checkups. The medical checkup includes recommendations on managing a healthy lifestyle and providing medical information such as maternal physiological changes during pregnancy and prenatal nutrition. Prenatal care reduces the frequency of maternal death, miscarriages, congenital disabilities, low birth weight, neonatal infections, and other preventable health problems.

How Many Appointments are Included?

Usually, a minimum of eight appointments is required for complete antenatal care. However, the number of appointments may increase or decrease depending on the risk of your pregnancy. A high-risk group will need more appointments.
